Custom Design Frameworks began due to the need for a ligature resistant framing system for use in the challenging behavioral healthcare environment. The CDF framing system consists of our own exclusive ligature resistant profile frame, a wall mounting system, the use of acrylic or polycarbonate glazing and recessed security mounting screws. Ligature resistance is maintained on all sides and the frame can be hung at any position. Strength is ensured through the filling of all gaps where damage can occur creating a tightly sealed unit. Caulking is suggested around the frame once installed to further prevent gaps at the wall. This is especially important when hung on brick or cinder block walls.
